This event was absolutely wonderful. Have not been to hear this group of six women since Bernice Johnson Reagon left and I was completely knocked out by the performance.... continued

Quotes & Highlights

“This ensemble is the gold standard…their voices are all fabulous, and they unite to create a sound so pure, smooth and homogenous that it does not seem humanly possible.”  —Fort Worth Star Telegram

Description

Rooted in the verdant soil of African American culture, the a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey In The Rock performs foot-stomping, soul-stirring, consciousness-raising music. With two founding members among the six vocalists, new talent steadily revitalizes the group, which also features an American Sign Language interpreter. Drawing on gospel, hymns, spirituals, R&B and jazz, Sweet Honey delivers songs that seem to float on delicate harmonies and surge with irresistible syncopation, as on their Grammy-nominated album, Experience…101.
